Elvis documentary that makes you end up asking... why?
19 May 2007 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

This 1994 documentary is one of those jump on the bandwagon projects. Dealing with why Elvis Presley became one the biggest musical icons in the world. Not only a legacy of music, but his movies and then there are the multitudes of books written about him. Why? What was it that made people of all races, creeds and nationalities strike a bond or even worship this beloved entertainer? The Elvis phenomenon still vibrates even after death. His records have sold more now than when he was alive. The looks, style, charisma and talent combined like no other. Supposedly some painstaking interviews were involved with the research for this documentary; but those that you see from anyone of any real importance in Elvis' life are few. My question why. Why is it projects like this one starts out fairly interesting and then invariably out come the lunatic fringe that takes all the importance away from anything and everything Elvis accomplished and make him and themselves look like idiots? Why?
